Planning & Preparing for Disaster
During hurricane season, June – November, having a disaster emergency response plan for yourself, as well as your family and pets, is important.
Many disasters like earthquakes, locally generated tsunamis, and others will leave you with very little time to react. Know what resources are available to you beforehand, and develop a plan to ensure that all of your family members know what to do and are accounted for.
